Update on National assembly: Speaker finally gains access into House

Speaker of the House of Reps Aminu Tambuwal has finally gained access into the House Chamber. There was chaos outside the Assembly complex this morning as police tried to prevent him and other lawmakers from entering the complex. Some had to scale the gates after all entry points were sealed off leaving only one open where many were thoroughly frisked and some turned back. There are allegations that most of the lawmakers turned back were from the APC. The police at some point even fired teargas and there are reports that some lawmakers fainted. 
Tambuwal, who had been prevented from driving through the second gate after passing the first gate of the Assembly complex was smuggled into the Chamber by loyalists who overpowered security operatives at the gate. See photos and account of what happened by Tambuwal's media advicer after the cut...
